Windows 7 cannot connect to internet.

August 30, 2011 at 14:49:55
Specs: Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, Phenom II X4 2.80GHz / 4gigs
Computer cannot connect to 2wire gateway after rebooting. There are no viruses on the computer and the wireless/wired cards were working perfectly the day before. On attempting to connect the D-link wireless software says, "Connecting and key wait" and windows says that I have limited access. The Troubleshooter says that there may be something wrong with the driver, but I have since updated it uninstalled and reinstalled the driver and tried other driver but it did not work. The internal ethernet card won't recognize the connection at all. Ubuntu works fine on the same computer. I have also tried resetting the gateway, and resetting the (TCP / IP)

Since ubuntu works fine then we do need to maybe look at ifconfig results and then compare them to ipconfig in windows.

if it says you have limited access, that usually means that you can connect to the modem/router however the internet is blocked to your machine by the modem/router.
you may have to add your win7 mac address to the router setup, or switch off mac adressing in the router, especially if your router was setup with the Ubuntu first.

You need a gateway address.

Might need dns also.
